Under the Iron Bridge: the Sexual Songs of the Smiths

i mean come on...that whole "celibate" thing got real old REAL FAST...especially if you listened to some of the "thinly veiled" lyrics.... early Smiths was so raging hormones gone wild....snogging sessions in alleys and railway stations.....shy nerdy boys and handsome teachers.....long frustrating drives home.....Schoolboy fantasies come true...or dreamed true.....So much pent up sexuality.....So by his supposed lack of sex he then somehow oozed sexuality.......

So...On this rainy London-like day...I present to you some of my favourite filthy Smiths songs with the most obviously titilating lyrics as well!!!!! SO curl up with some Oscar Wilde....put on your best tweed coat with the leather elbows.....stuff some gladiolas in your back pocket....and open up your tent flaps WIDE......


P.S. I know the last lyric is a Morrissey song but i included it anyway because i love the confusing sensuality of that song!!!!!

And when we're in your scholarly room
who will swallow whom?
and when we're in your scholarly room
who will swallow whom?
you handsome devil

I know the wind-swept mystical air
It means : I'd like to see your underwear
I recognise that mystical air
It means : I'd like to seize your underwear 

Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days 

And if you ever need self-validation
Just meet me in the alley by the
Railway station
It's all over my face
Oh ... 

I dreamt about you last night
And I fell out of bed twice
You can pin and mount me like a butterfly
But "take me to the haven of your bed"
Was something that you never said
Two lumps, please
You're the bee's knees
But so am I

Were you and he Lovers ?
And would you say so if you were ?
On a forecourt
On a Friday
Passing my way

Were you and he Lovers ?
And if you were, then say that you were!
On a groundsheet
Under canvas
With your tent-flap
open wide

A note upon his desk
"P.S. Bring Me Home And Have Me!"
Leather elbows on a tweed coat
Is THAT the best you can do ?
So came his reply :
"But on the desk is where I want you!"

So I ask (even though I know):
Were you and he Lovers ?
